Publisher's Summary

Being a classroom hamster means having to be ready for anything - but suddenly there are a lot of big surprises in Humphrey's world. Some are exciting, like seeing the playground during a fire drill and getting to roll around in a hamster ball. But some aren't so good, like a cat creeping around, a different janitor who might be from another planet, and the most shocking thing of all - the possibility of Mrs. Brisbane retiring.

Even with all that's going on, Humphrey makes time to help a few classmates with their problems. But could Mrs. Brisbane leaving school be one problem that's just too big for this little guy to solve?

Friendship According to Humphrey received a Christopher Award, and kids voted The World According to Humphrey the winner of children's choice awards in six states. Plus, it's been nominated for ten others.

    Story
    "Huphrey!!"
    Would you listen to Surprises According to Humphrey again? Why?

    We do listen almost weekly. My son (age 9) surprisingly loves it. Its a great little story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Great story. Nothing offensive. Humphrey the hamster really enjoys learning with the children in his class. and has adventures, too.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I personally enjoyed how Humphrey goes home with each child including the teacher and we get a glimpse as teachers as real people. Something young kids don't really think about.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, the story keeps moving smoothly.


    Any additional comments?

    No, just that this is a first of many for my family.
